My point is, for those who have ASD has to look at life from a different perspective. The first thing I've learned that helped me most is that; Never
take anything for granted. This includes your senses. I always wonder why people with ASD, especially those who can hear has a hard time being around
people. Few reasons that I can think of at the moment is; they don't love themselves. More often than not, people believe how they see themselves is
how other people will see them. As long as you believe this, you will be projecting this onto others and most likely people will see you the way you
are thinking they will see you. Fear of failure? Some people try too hard to be accepted by others, and this fear could hold them back. I'm sure
there are several others but I want to keep this short.
My advice to those with ASD;
Don't take anything for granted. Your hearing alone, is the most important sense that can allow you to do wonders with your life. Learn something, do
you have goals? Do them, as for relationships goes don't be to hard on yourself. A lot of people are in the same situation as you, and choose to
handle it their own way. Some people like to gossip, make up things, lie their way through, too pass time. Ever wonder why a lot of people smoke?
Usually smokers are the kind of people who don't enjoy being around people but only do it because they want to boost their ego to feel good about
themselves. They don't want to feel like a "loser", and hense they try to be around others so people can think they are "cool". That's the
hidden reason why people smoke, I believe there is a little more too it than just being addicting. I also study people, especially when they smoke.
Which is why I came ot these conclusions.
There's more in life than talking about subjects and topics. There are lots of things you can do with people, you can help them and learn from them.
People love it when others listen to them, you don't have to actually enjoy it but just pretend to enjoy it and ask questions to make it look like
you're interested. If they talk about anything that you can relate too, that's when you can talk about your experiences. Listen to what people talk
to among eachother in the background and if you hear of any interesting topics don't be afraid to jump in and talk among with them.
